Topping trees destroys trees
While pruning your trees this year - don't "top" them! Topping trees is the indiscriminate cutting back of tree branches to stubs or lateral branches to stubs. Topping is the most harmful tree pruning practice known. It can kill trees, weaken trees, promote rapid decay, lead to sunburn injury, destroy the beauty of the tree and lead to tree starvation.
